WHAT IF I NEED A PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION?
It depends. Naturopathic Doctors can write some prescriptions in California, but not all. In general, natural and synthetic hormones can be prescribed by an ND, but drugs like pain medications and antibiotics cannot. If your treatment requires these, we'll let you know and help you figure out who to see to get these medications. The majority of cases we see don't require prescriptions, and can be addressed with the treatments available through a naturopathic doctor.
